Sustainable Planning in Queensland provides a complete introduction to planning law in Queensland.
It describes and explains the main features of Queensland's principal planning statute, the Sustainable Planning Act, 2009, and brings the features of this highly technical statute to life with a variety of case studies drawn from planning documents and legal sources. Particular coverage is given to regional planning and the impacts of Queensland's rapid population growth whilst the perennial issues for planning how to drive efficiency, accountability and integration - are also explored in the context of the new Act. In addition, a contribution from his Honour, Judge Michael Rackemann, provides an insightful analysis of the Planning and Environment Court.
Sustainable Planning in Queensland sets out to describe and comment on the operation of planning law in Queensland at the start of the 21st century. In terms of population growth, urban and regional development, Queensland is now Australia's fastest growing State. This definitive trend makes a clear understanding of Queensland's planning system - including its legal framework and main policy directions - a desirable goal for students, practitioners, interested on lookers and concerned residents in fact, for anyone who cares about the form and implications of Queensland's ongoing urban development.
Sustainable Planning in Queensland, the successor to Integrated Planning in Queensland, is designed to enlighten this audience, offering a clear account of some basic principles but also inviting the reader to question, challenge and probe further into an area of law that is actively shaping the future face of Queensland.
Reviews of Integrated Planning in Queensland:
This book is useful for anyone involved in planning in Queensland. …The latest changes to IPA are intended to be more than just procedural reform. They aim to further reconcile public sector reform with ecological sustainability and the strengthened role of local government in Queensland planning. For newcomers to the jurisdiction this book provides an insight into the theoretical and historical context of IPA and trends influencing Queensland’s planning environment. Self-represented litigants and others unfamiliar with the rights and processes involved with IPA will find it an excellent general reference tool. Individuals already familiar with Queensland’s planning regime will find this book useful in keeping up to date with IPA developments and changes such as the recent Integrated Planning and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2003. - The Queensland Lawyer Vol 25(1), August 2004
